Your Art as TATTOO? What to do when you get this request

My Artworks as TATTOOS

Lately I have received an increased number of requests from people that like my art asking permission to use my artworks for a tattoo. I am happy that people like my Art as much to decide to have it permanently inked somewhere on their body.  I consider this request a great and wonderful honor, I am thrilled and humbled that someone is thinking to use my existing paintings or illustrations for their tattoos! Well, as visual artist this open another window into my art. I love tattoos and  this is the opportunity with this post to inform and talk about a few important things. What to do with a request like this? If you’re an artist, or, if you are the person interested to get the tattoo.  There is something very important to be aware of, and is that people cannot just save an image of an artwork over the internet and take it to the Tattoo Shop to  have it tattooed. Some Tattoo artists only works on their own custom creations and most of all they do not copy another tattoo artist work. They are a bit more open when you bring your favorite visual artist work to be recreated having the permission from the artist. So, what to do then?  There is a mutual respect of the Copyright  between a tattoo artist and a visual artist, no one wants to do a “Copyright Infringement” while recreating without permission an existing artwork that is not custom created by the tattoo artist you choose but created by another artist. Then, not everyone knows that if you’re going to bring your favorite artist artwork to have it tattooed it’s needed the artist “Permission”. All you need to do is to obtain your permission in advance, by contacting directly the artist, or find out if he/she sell a Tattoo Pass/Ticket on their website or shop. What is a Tattoo Pass or  Tattoo Ticket? Artists sell the permission letter to use their artwork as tattoo often nothing is shipped and they send a downloadable PDF for you to print. When you purchase the Pass or Ticket, it’s your kind way to pay and support the artist work and art.

About me, I have been thinking at a nice way to grant my tattoo permission to who is interested. I have created and released my TATTOO Permission Pack!
My Pack includes the personal permission letter and a beautiful hand enhanced print of my artwork you want to be tattooed.

I really appreciate if you ask permission in advance is a great act of support and kindness!
I own the Copyright of my work as Artist ©Carolina Russo any unauthorized reproduction or use without my written permission is in violation of the U.S. Copyright law.
I am happy to grant you a Tattoo Permission for my Artworks to be inked, but before you go on, there are few details that you need to know, please make sure to read my Tattoo Policy.

Tattoo Policy:
1) If you love my Art please consider to support my work by buying (prior getting the tattoo done) my TATTOO Permission Pack  price is $55 + free shipping, which includes the written Permission a 5×7 inch print of the artwork you choose to get tattooed.

Tears In The Fire

Tears In The Fire – Watercolor ©Carolina Russo

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a great start of the year!
I know lately I have been pretty quiet and didn’t post here on the Blog as much I’d like to. I took a break to recharge my creativity.  I didn’t know how to feel in this beginning of the year, there is so much going on in the world.

Today post is about the release of my new watercolor painting with the title Tears In The Fire this is my first painting of the 2020 and it is very special to me.
I feel so much sadness for the heartbreaking situation affecting Australia from months under the catastrophic wildfires that is destroying, animals, wildlife, natural habitats, and people.  Sidney University experts estimated that over 1 billion of animals has tragically perished it’s heartbreaking!

I gave the title Tears In The Fire because I can only imagine how much, tears, pain and suffering these beautiful animals are going through. My painting is dedicated to the wonderful Koalas 🐨 and to all the rescuers that are helping and caring daily for them to heal painful burnt paws and injuries and to all the other animals in desperate need of care surviving this horrific fire.

I hope that my painting can rise awareness and give a tiny contribution to support the wonderful Koalas and wildlife victims in this terrible time for them. I love all the animals and now they needs our help, together we can make a little difference in their recovery. Since I was a child I dream to one day being able to hold a lovely Koala in my arms! I hope I will one day! ♥️

Prints of my painting are now available for purchase as Open Edition signed and hand enhanced in size 5×7 and 8×10 inches please visit my >>  ETSY Shop

Inktober 2019 – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 26 Dark – Huli Jing

Day 26 Dark – Huli Jing

Day 26:  Dark – Huli Jing
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober2019 
Inktober:  Dark
MabsDrawlloweenClub2019:  Huli Jing

Today prompt “Huli Jing” is inspired by the Chinese Mythology (Chinese狐狸精; literally: ‘fox spirit’) or jiuweihu (Chinese: 九尾狐; literally: ‘nine-tailed fox’) are Chinese mythological creatures who can be either good or bad spirits. During the Han dynasty, the development of ideas about interspecies transformation had taken place in Chinese culture. The idea that non-human creatures with advancing age could assume human form. As these traditions developed, the fox’s capacity for transformation was shaped. (Source WikipediA)

I hope you like my drawing and vision of the Huli Jing representing the 9 tales Fox Spirit, the black minimalistic background is for combine the prompt Dark. I think it suits greatly with my composition.

Inktober 2019 – MabsDrawlloweenClub Day 24 Dizzy – La Llorona

Day 24 – Dizzy – La Llorona

Day 24:  Dizzy – La Llorona
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober2019 
Inktober:  Dizzy
MabsDrawlloweenClub2019:  La Llorona

Today prompt “La Llorona” is what inspired the creation of my whole drawing.

The Legend:In Latin American folklore, La Llorona also known as the Weeping Woman or the cryer, is one of the most famous legends. It is the story of a woman. The lore states a woman was abandoned by her husband and was left alone to raise her two sons, whom she instead drowned in a river out of grief and anger. As a result of her actions the woman is condemned to wander for all eternity until she finds the bodies of her children, often causing misfortune to those who are near or hear her. The oral story represents La Llorona as a person, legend, ghost, goddess, metaphor and symbol“. (source WikipediA)

This is my Vision: of La Llorona I wanted to capture her in a specific emotional state, which is that moment when after all the pain and sorrow, when the sadness took all her tears, when there is nothing else out of her… that moment when she needs to surrender to herself and let it go all the pain, is that moment when she comes out of the dark, see barely the light and when she gets her first breath with a feeling of relief 🖤this is what I wanted to capture in her. I hope I did! Today drawing was a little on the darkside but that was the only way to represent La Llorona.

❤ Details about my drawings: Supplies used for my Ink drawing ink pens used COPIC Multiliner Black ink #03 and 05, Micron dark red ink #, brown #003. Fountain Pen Pilot Prera Fine Nib. Alvin Draft/Matic pencil #03 Limited Edition Pink Mab Graves.
